Pollycraft Card

Hiya everyone,

I have managed to get another card made today - loving all this creative play time at the mo, but this will soon be a thing of the past once I start childminding.  Will just mean that me, Lizy and Jen will have to plan more crafty days over the weekends....that'll be fun :)

Anyway, onto the card for today....



I have used a Pollycraft image that was in my bundle off Lizy, for Christmas...it's Jerry Kisses - Drummer.  After forcing the printer to take the card, I managed to print onto some watercolour card and then used my Whisper pens to colour the image.  However, ink jet ink and water don't mix very well, as you might be able to see, the ink ran and bled into the image a little.  So I stopped watercolouring and just used the pens normally.  Still like the effect though.  I used a circle punch for the image and a quickutz cookie cutter die for the scallop circle.

I don't know the name of the paper I'm afraid, as it's from my huge pile of scrapbooking stash and it was in my scrap bag, so no idea who makes it......added some Papermania buttons to the corner.

The sketch I have followed is from Sketch Saturday.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Sketch Saturday - Sketch
and 
- Cards for Men - Boys & Their Toys

Thanks for looking :)
